Jake and Sarah revisit Javanka with an original song about the couple's new website, FindSomethingNew.org. Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner telling millions of out of work Americans to simply “Find Something New” may feel pretty tone-deaf, but this tune might just leave you singing along with them.

Jake & Sarah Present brought their hit show to American Repertory Theater in Boston!
In "Javanka 2020: On The Trail," Jake and Sarah portray America’s first daughter and son-in-law in this riotous satirical cabaret. Told through their favorite medium of musical comedy, Jared and Ivanka are on the campaign trail to spread the gospel of Trump and rally the troops for the 2020 re-election. Featuring their spin on Sondheim to Adele with original music too, Javanka have secrets to spill and hidden talents to share. Take a break from the impeachment trial and hear Jared and Ivanka sing!
Jake recently portrayed the Conductor in AcousticaElectronica. This immersive dance piece showcases Jake dancing, singing, and playing the piano and guitar.
AcousticaElectronica is a 360º sensory experience that is a mashup of opposites: the classical and electronic, a trip to the theatre and a night on the dance floor.

Mythical Creatures: A Musical Short
Mythical Creatures is a new original musical short film from Jake & Sarah Present. Inspired by Sarah's real-world job of audiobook narration (as told in their show "Trapped in the Closet"), Mythical Creatures tells the story of the creatures so often featured in fantasy romance novels and the women who fall in love with them!
Directed by Johan T. Anderson with music by Jake and lyrics by Sarah Naughton.
Jake has collaborated with Broadway's Maddy Apple in "Ode to the Singing Butler" to bring to life the characters of Jack Vettriano's iconic painting. Together they directed, choreographed, and produced the silent musical short film. Jake composed the original orchestral score, for which he won 1st place at the Golden Key Composition Festival in Vienna, Austria. He also dances on screen as the Butler. The film was an official selection at six film festivals this past year.
Jake has teamed up with writing partner Sarah Naughton to officially form their musical comedy duo: Jake & Sarah Present! Most recently they completed several sold-out productions of their cabaret, Trapped in the Closet at Feinstein’s/54 Below. A recording of Trapped in the Closet was also featured as the pilot episode of the new musical podcast, "The Micro-Musical Theater Show." They regularly perform at The PIT and around NYC. They also write original music together. Stay tuned for future presentations!
Following the sold-out run at Feinstein's/54 Below, Trapped in the Closet was recorded and released as the pilot episode of the new podcast, "The Micro-Musical Theatre Show."
Join Sarah and Jake in Trapped in the Closet for a wildly imaginative journey inside Sarah's bedroom closet-turned-recording studio as she shares tales from the unsung world of audiobook narration and reveals some of the most ridiculous books she has ever been paid to read out loud! Trapped features music from Broadway favorites as well as original music written with Jake. Looking for an hour of musical storytelling that is as hilarious as it is touching and personal? Come get trapped!
